I have learned that the real purpose of life is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, and that nobody can do that except by a special transforming experience called the new birth.
At the age of 26 I was married to Elaine and we had two small children. I worked for the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. One day a coworker named Bob said, “Ed I want to ask you a question. Are you saved?” I said "I don't know -- what are you talking about”?
He said "If you died today what would happen to you -- would you go to Heaven -- or would you go to Hell”? I said I don't know -- I never thought about that.
He went on to tell me that He knew for certain that he would go to Heaven. He explained that though he wasn't perfect he had put his trust in Jesus Christ and what he did for us on the cross. It had changed his life and the scriptures assured him that he was saved.
That encounter and question led me to weeks of questions in my heart. One Sunday morning as I visited Bob's church I found myself responding to an invitation from the pulpit and I asked Jesus to save me too. Elaine also responded to that invitation and was saved. For over 50 years now we have enjoyed the wonderful assurance that we are His, and will certainly go to Heaven because of who He is, and what He did for us on that Cross.
My greatest interest is to help others find the way and experience salvation. This website is dedicated to helping all true believers share the great message of salvation by grace to as many people as we can.
God bless --Ed--
